Are you one of the many cyclists in Metro Vancouver that’s participating in Bike to Work Week? Then read on because we’ve got some exciting news for you.
The brand new Secure Bike Parking area at Main Street-Science World has opened, and we’re very excited to introduce this new cycling infrastructure to the system!
Wondering what a Secure Bike Parking area really is? Well, it’s an indoor facility at Main Street-Science World Station where registered customers can store their bikes for the day and connect directly to SkyTrain. The facility has over 80 racks, increasing bike storage four times more than the lockers that were there before.
Parking your bike in the Secure Bike Parking area costs just $1/day up to a maximum of $8/month. After parking your bike eight days in a single calendar month, you won’t be charged again until the following month. The more you ride your bike, the more you save!
To use the Secure Bike Parking area at Main Street-Science World Station, all you need to do is register for an account! Registration officially launched today and there are limited spaces, so don’t put it off.
How do I register?
Registering for an account is quick and easy. Call C-Media at 604-924-1076 and provide your account information and initial payment. Your access card will be mailed to you within five business days, then all you need to do is bring your card, bike and lock to Main Street-Science World Station and you’re ready to go! Online registration will be available very soon.
Like the sounds of this new facility, but don’t use Main Street-Science World Station very much? We’ll open additional facilities in the coming years as we replace bike lockers at some of our busiest locations – a Secure Bike Parking area could be coming to a neighbourhood near you!
